My two sons, Tristan (4) and Tiernan (2) share their bedroom. The each have their own beds-Tiernan still has a crib. They both go to bed at the same time, 8:00 pm, most nights. When Tiernan goes to bed by himself (usually if he has a really bad day or is teething o sick), he goes to sleep right away. It doesn't take him more than ten or 20 minutes to fall asleep. When Tristan goes to bed with him, they stay awake for hours! My husband and I go in there, split them up, bring Tristan out to the corner, whatever we think might help him understand we're not joking around.
The rules are; no getting out of bed except to pee, no toys in bed, and no going into Tiernan's crub. He does all those things each and every night. He also doesn't bother going to the bathroom-he pees on his FLOOR. We have to have a doorknob cover on the bathroom door because he sneaks soap out of there to play with in his bedroom.
We don't know what to do with this kid! He needs to go to bed and stay there, and he needs to STOP peeing on the floor! Their room stniks so bad, but I'm getting so tired of having to steam clean their carpet every month. My husband and I are out of ideas and nobody in our families can give us any sound advice. Please help!
